(AP) Danish shipper and oil group A.P. Moller-Maersk says it expects to do better this year than last despite reporting a 2 percent drop in second-quarter earnings to 20.67 billion kroner ($3.42 billion).


The world's largest container shipping company says revenues for the three-month period were up 11 percent to 88.82 billion kroner from the same period a year earlier.


CEO Nils S. Andersen says the company was "back on track" as container rates and its other core businesses have improved.


The Copenhagen-based group also says 2012 financial results would be "slightly above the result of 2011. "


Maersk shares dropped 0.4 percent in Copenhagen trading Tuesday morning to 40,600 kroner ($6,722).
